Amy was the photographer at La Badia, Orvieto, Umbria, Italy for Wolter & Estelle’s wedding.
Not long back from France and I had 5 weddings in the week ahead. Starting in my favourite Italian town of all and the town where I got married, Orvieto. The venue, La Badia, was somewhere I knew very well and actually overlooks Orvieto. Such a beautiful and atmospheric place, I was really looking forward to going back there and to see Wolter and Estelle again.
The weather was beautiful and the sun streaming in through the single high window in the chapel made for a magical ceremony. Dutch tradition saw the cake being cut and eaten immediately after the ceremony which we then followed with group shots and lots of food and drink! The tables laid out in the old ruins of the ancient abbey were absolutely stunning. Take a look:

The chapel looked wonderful with the olive trees around the altar.
Wolter’s Parents. Love the colour of Mum’s outfit.
Estelle’s beautiful ‘wild flower’ bouquet.

Estelle looked so gorgeous. I’m a big fan of a lacy dress.
Love this photograph taken during the ceremony – what a nicely-lit beard!
Look at that light – truly magical!
Such an amazing building to marry in.
One of my favorites from the day, taken whilst the guests were eating cake and we popped back into the chapel.
Close family and bridal party.
What a display – this for me is where the Italian caterers really excel.
Love this one – even though I’m a veggie!
Wolter’s sister makes the most of the delicious spread.

What a model!
Such an impressive location and set-up. Stunning!
Cheers to a brilliant day!
Now you can see why it’s one of my favourite venues – so impressive, historic and atmospheric. Such a brilliant start to my week of weddings. Thanks for everything Wolter & Estelle. Can’t wait to hear where you are on honeymoon :-) Amy x
